    Does Caffeine Make You Euphoric?

    So I've been using caffeine for several years now and I'm wondering if maybe my reaction to it isn't normal. I become really euphoric on it and I look forward to taking it. It changes my entire mood and makes my world far more vivid. I often find myself just sitting there enjoying the effects of it. When I used to take caffeine pills in the morning I would lay there for an hour enjoying the effects of it. Instead of making me hyper it makes me really mellow and relaxed to the point where I feel like I have no energy and just want to lay down. It's not addicting though even though I look forward to the feeling I get from it. I drink a lot of green tea now instead of taking the caffeine pills. Do you guys have a similar reaction to it too or is this abnormal?

    It can do that. I think it does that when you overdose.

    I don't drink coffee or soda. Caffeine doesn't enter my system.

    I think I'm going to switch to decaf. I drink the green tea for its antioxidants mostly anyway. Although I love the caffeine feeling.

    I don't drink coffee or soda either. Soda is about the worst thing you can possibly drink. You're just asking for an early death.

    I used to, it's not like they're all that dangerous. You can go to any supermarket and buy them. Each one is the equivalent of a couple of cups of coffee or something like that.

    A couple of cups of coffee increases your chances of a heart attack by 30-60%.

    Caffeine

    Oh yeah and you asked me about supplements... Creatine monohydrate and vitamins are it. A lot of Vitamin D and calcium though, well beyond RDA.

    Milk and water. Rarely drink juice. Maybe drink tea once a year or something (I know I never make tea but I'm not very opposed to it so I might have drunk it somewhere along the line; I just know I never brewed it). No soda. No coffee. No alcohol.

    Aren't you also the guy who just said pot is worse for the brain than glue-sniffing in the other thread? Where are you getting this information?

    Drixnak, I sometimes experience a sort of mellow goodwill after drinking good tea. However, as plain old Red Rose teabags don't have the same effect--nor soda--I chalk it up to my fondness for really good tea. I used to love Teaism's Guangdong blend, but the SOBs discontinued it.

    No. I'm doing it for health, well-being, and what is RIGHT!

    I also don't have sexual relations

    Why are you giving a thumbs up to your not having sexual relations? Also, stop using the creatine. You are wasting your money hardcore and it's one of the most dangerous supplements out there after the legal steroids being marketed as "supplements." I've used a lot of different stuff out there, and only 2 things ever gave me kidney issues: Creatine and HDrol. The latter of which is a legal "supplement" steroid with a 17a methylated portion. Stop the creatine and stick to whey protein and your vitamin. If you want supplements to build muscle then you are far safer going with injectable testosterone enanthate. Don't even bother with it though in your present state because you have a ton of research and learning to do yet.

    You are so full of ****. Nothing's wrong with creatine.

    And I don't drink whey protein because it tastes terrible. Rather go GOMAD.

    Well i can understand that you don't drink alcohol, or coffee. But how could you get through life without consuming anything with caffiene in it. Oh and Elok i will say that i have my sources, and that i have had nothing else to do for 16 years of my life other then research this kind of stuff.

    You're a total ****ing newbie and idiot. People have died from using creatine you moron. I've met a lot of different people who have developed kidney problems from creatine. It's quite possibly the worst trash out there and the most used by newbies like you. Don't feel bad though, I used to use it too...when I was a newbie.

    There have been people actually in my area that have died. Several football players. You probably won't die as long as you don't train too hard and you drink enough water. Why use something though that has so little gain from it and so much possibility for negative effects?

    Don't lump weed in with the other references. It makes you look stupid.

    You're citing a study from 2002, nice job. You're also not taking into account how the creatine is prepared or distributed. I'm not sure why a guy who has the training regiment like you and is so obviously new to this **** is even arguing with me.
